IMO, rotation is less of a factor than PRESSURE cks.  The rule of thumb is 1 
psi = 7 degrees temp rise/drop.  I can eyeball my tire wear good enough to get 
me to the wear bars pretty consistently over the last 20 years without any 
spreadsheet or dated timeline.  What makes a bigger difference to tire longevity 
(= GOAL) is making sure the pressure of the tires is cked regularly, and more 
so with big temp swings.  Recognizing alignment issues and causes is my 
number 2.  Rotation?  I used to try and keep left right orientation before oriented 
tires, but I have conflicting expert documentation on that as well.
